I was reading about malpractice cases and it seems as though the majority of cases involve operating on the wrong side. How can a physician put the x ray backwards? isn't there some sort of label that says "RIGHT SIDE UP"? In addition, for those who have particpated in a surgical procedure, the pads that they use during surgery...how do they keep count of it? I mean what if the pad is left in the person's body. Do the nurses keep count of that stuff? Also, during an emergency, how long does it take for the surgeon to wash his hands and put on his gloves? And are there any other hospital problems or concerns that you guys can think of or have experienced besides the fact that hospitals are the most dangerous places cuz you can get deadly infections there? Thanks.
